Spent a few hundred in the last couple of weeks on plants for the garden. Hope they all survive as that's where they are now, planted.

A woman said that to me just after I planted four fruit trees, three maple trees and another £300 worth of bloody shrubs and flowers Sad

Mrs A..I used to think it meant the month of May..but it means the Mayflower or Hawthorne which is in flower in April and May.

My mum, as do others used to say this about planting out. Meaning there can be a cold snap in May which could kill your plants. It is  indeed a Mayflower/Hawthorn bush My Greenhouse 709307421
